Storyline

Lex returns to Smalville and the Lex mansion, and invites Dr. Helen Bryce for a second honeymoon while trying to find out if it was her or his father who attempted to kill him. Meanwhile, Clark also returns to Smallville and the Kent farm, but Morgan Edge finds him and threatens to kill Jonathan and Martha in to get what Clark stole from Lionel Luthor's safe, which is the stolen vile of Clark Kent's blood. With the financial status of the Kent family in dire straights, the farm is sold in an auction, but there is a surprise in the end. Also, Lana tries to declare her love for Clark, but he rejects her love out of fear that she may discover his secret. Clark also returns to Smallville High and to the Torch newspaper under Chloe who continues to investigate Clark's origins. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Mixture of moving and mushy
9 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There were some bits about this that did not really work. For me it was particularly Jonathan's acceptance of Lex's gift. I guess he had to accept it back to make the story work, but still, come on, we know Jonathan. On the whole, this episode was okay, but I think my biggest problem with it is that there were bits that were just too mushy. Lex's conversation with Lionel at the end and the compass story. The whole Helen bit just seemed like the writers/producers were not sure what to do with the story, so they just did the best they could. And it's also quite typical that everyone that knows Clark's secret is killed off. My best part was when Clark saw Lex, after he came back. That part was well acted and quite moving.
